Andrae Crouch was one of the biggest names in gospel music, winning seven Grammys during his career. He worked with the likes of Michael Jackson and Madonna, and on iconic movies like "The Color Purple" and "The Lion King."

But, he was also a pastor at the New Christ Memorial Church - located in The San Fernando Valley. Crouch died yesterday of complications following a heart attack, at the age of 72.

Gospel singer and friend - Cece Winans - joins Deepa Fernandez on the line.

In the audio version of this story, it’s incorrectly stated that Andrae Crouch won seven Emmy Awards, when he actually won seven Grammy Awards. KPCC regrets the error.
